Calvin Harris didn’t win the Grammy Award for Producer of the Year — but that wasn’t due to lack of trying!
In 2017, he dropped some of the freshest music of his career with Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 featuring tons of big names like Katy Perry, Pharrell, Big Sean, Migos, Nicki Minaj, Khalid, Future and more. But what he really thought would get the attention of the Recording Academy wasn’t his star-studded collaborations.
“Last year I grew a big ol beard in order to be taken seriously by the Grammys as a producer,” Calvin just shared in an Instagram post. “It worked to an extent — my Producer of the Year nomination came through and I was happy the beard was performing as well as I had hoped.”
Then, reality struck in…
“But unfortunately this weekend I learned that even a new beard has its limitations. On Sunday I lost out to the incredible Greg Kurstin. A big ol beard can only take you so far.”
“An important lesson learned that I am happy to pass forward to all of you good people. Now my beard is gone, the experiment completed and I can move forward with 2018! God bless and thank you for your support!!!”
LOL, ok then. Better luck to Calvin Harris and his beard (or lack thereof) next year!
